For Whirlpool Top Burner Igniter (Part Number: AP2990095)

Hi, I have a 12+ year old Whirpool gas stove/oven, and the main burner (left front) doesn't light immediately after sparking. I hear the tick tick tick of the ignitor, but it takes a while to light so most of the time I use a Bic lighter. Is the problem the ignitor? Thanks.

Frustrated for Model Number SF377PEGZ1

ANSWER Hello. You will need to check and make sure the burner, igniter, and the cap are good and clean on the unit. It sounds like they ay be a little dirty and it is not sparking correctly due to this. Also, the unit must be dry to work properly as well. Hope this helps.
